y^(7)-y^(6)-2y^(4)+2y^(3)+dy-y=0(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Note: There is exactly one real zero of the characteristic polynomial and it

has multiplicity 3 (it is a positive integer!). The other zeros are complex

and they have multiplicity 2.

Sadly I missed this lecture day, and am unsure of where to start. Any diffeq demi-gods out there?
